Award for MHACA’s ‘Suicide Story – our Way’

The Coalition would like to congratulate our member organisation Mental Health Association of Central Australia (MHACA’s ) Suicide Story program which receive The Northern Territory Fitzgerald Human Rights award for Social Change on 7 December 2016.

MHACA is very proud of ‘Suicide Story – Our Way’ and its way of using cultural practices to guide participants through the process of understanding suicide and reducing stigma so communities can help one another in times of crisis.

Suicide Story would not have been possible without the hard work and commitment of many brothers, sisters, aunties, uncles and elders throughout the NT who provided their wisdom in its development and implementation.

MHACA would like to acknowledge the work and dedication of all the Suicide Story team members from Central, Barkly and Top End regions both past and present. This includes, Suicide Story Facilitators, Program Managers, Project Officers, Trainers, past SSAAG members and all community members who have welcomed our program into their lives and contributed to its growing strength.

Finally, they gratefully acknowledge their sponsors, the Northern Territory Department of Health and the Northern Territory Primary Health Network.

For more information about Suicide Story please call 8950 4600 or visit the MHACA website.
